North York General Hospital (NYGH) is the first acute care hospital in Canada to be presented with the HIMSS Davies Award of Excellence. Only about 50 hospitals around the world are recipients of this award by the Health Information Management Systems Society, known as HIMSS.

On February 1, 2017, NYGH staff, physicians and volunteers were joined by partners and stakeholders along with the Honourable Dr. Eric Hoskins, Minister of Health and Long-Term Care, and the hospital's two local members of provincial parliament, the Honourable Michael Coteau, MPP for Don Valley East, and the Honourable David Zimmer, MPP for Willowdale, to celebrate this significant achievement.
